There’s nothing quite like surfing. To finally master a wave, keep your balance and not end up with a face full of water is one of the best feelings you can get. Surfing also gets bonus points for the keeping you fit and taking place in beautiful surroundings on a beach. So much better than a sweaty gym, right?
From UK seasides to Asian destinations, and of course far out Australia, every continent has waves worth discovering. But which ones are the best for our budget-minded travellers?
Taghzout is a tiny town with great waves year round, and at enticing Moroccan prices.
If you’re a seasoned boarder you can hire one from the shops lining the beach and jump right in. Anyone yet to stand on their own two feet can benefit from the many surf and yoga retreats in Taghzout. If you book in advance you’ll get a pick up from Agadir airport, dorm-style accommodation and sessions of sunset yoga to stretch out those tired muscles. You’ll learn to surf in small groups, which is great if you’re cruising solo.
